ECHO PARK — Vegans will never go hungry in Echo Park. Neighborhood shops sell bags of vegan teriyaki jerky and boxes of vegan mac & cheese balls. Restaurants serve up slabs of “cauliflower steak” and vegan banh mi sandwiches. Now, those who crave freshly baked vegan cinnamon rolls will soon be able to get their fix at Cinnaholic, which is opening a shop in the nearly complete Mohawk Collective near Sunset Boulevard and Alvarado Street.
The small chain of “gourmet cinnamon roll” stores” says its products are not only free of dairy, lactose, eggs and cholesterol, they are served up with 30 different types of flavored frostings and toppings (Chai and pretzel, anyone?). Franchisee Erik Abramson said he expects the store to open in the spring.
The same shopping center will also include Starbucks and Chipotle.
